Where were these fun playrooms when I was growing up?

I think I'd like cooking if I could have a kitchen like this!
Oh, let's play market! So stinkin' cute!

I came home from a Visiting Teaching Conference tonight and found this cute surprise on my kitchen counter......

Sweetiepie wasn't home and I was puzzled as to where it came from because my BFF's were with me at the church!
It was a CUTE Valentine vintage, shabby and adorable!
Someone knows just what I like.....

Adorable Valentine papers....tied up with strings.....

Take a close look..........

Oh, so fun............

Check out the details....right down to the polka dots......

Wanna move to Joe City?

We've got some kids that are selling their home in Joseph City and want to move to SnowFlake......but before they can move to SnowFlake they need to have someone love their home as much as they do and buy it from them.
They have done so many improvements and it's got a historical flare too!
You have to see it in person in order to really appreciate it's charm.

Be sure to go to their website to see every room~they'll be happy you stopped by.

2 thumbs up....1 thumbs down!

I got this perfect brownie pan for Christmas......
It's awesome
Especially since Sweetiepie loves the edges of the brownie
and it makes perfect pieces
I frost the pieces individually
The are amazing!
I've already used it 6 times since Christmas
You gotta get one!

These little wonders have made my life so much better!
Imagine that.....
getting excited about Microfiber Terry Towels
But let me tell you.....
Ever since we put in the granite counter tops I have been obsessed with keeping them clean and streak free......
Next to impossible, I might add!
Seems the dark granite showed every single little thing!
Drove me crazy
I was a Windex and paper towel freak....seems I always had windex in one hand and a paper towel in the other......and they still looked like crap.

Then one day our tile man was here and he told me about these little gems
And I am in LOVE!
I use the green one wet, to wipe the counter tops and use the yellow one to dry it with........
No streaks........EVER!!!

The only problem I see with them is you can't use fabric softner with removes the magnetic part, or something like that.
Also, I wish they weren't such light colors.......
but you know, my life is so much easier with them I won't complain!
Gotta get ya' some!
I also have a mop made out of the same stuff....
folks always ask how I keep my white tile so shiny....
Now you know

Now, to the thumbs down............take a look at this.......
Can you guess what this is?
It goes in my dryer........yep, a Bounce Stick on
Every piece of lint from anywhere is stuck to this bad boy.......
Can you imagine?
Don't waste your'll just be throwing your money away and that's exactly what I'm going to do with this thing!!
(I've only done 2 loads of laundry with this)
Can't get rid of it fast enough!

I need some inspiration..........

This is the spot I decorate for each holiday
I've had this chocolate and strawberry stuff sitting right here since Christmas.........wondering, what the heck am I going to do?

Every time I walk by I move things around a bit
still, wondering what I'm gonnnnna do!

Such cute stuff (from Terri's garage sale)
But....too much stuff...I think that's what the problem is.......

So, I decided to use some here.....and I'll have to find a place to use the rest of it.


The finished product!

When I find a good place to put the rest of it I'll post that too
But for now, this is it!

Don't you just ♥ these BIG, FAT marshmallows!
Found them at the Ranch Market........who would have thought!
